If you love cheesy puns & local art, this is the event for you! (I kid- I love cheesy puns.)
Andrew Butler is a mulit-talented, wonderful artist who has taught in DTE’s in-school programs, is currently (2nd session today!) doing the In Transition Theater Workshop with local young people, and performed for some friends of DTE back in August at the Clover Club.
Tomorrow night, check out his one-man show (excerpts of which were performed at the Clover Club), Rags Parkland, at Ars Nova’s Ant Fest 2010.
More to come throughout the day.
Hopefully seeing Angels & Accordions at Green-Wood Cemetery. Why?
Well, for one thing it’s going to be a beautiful day & maybe the last time all year you can see the breathtaking grounds of the Cemetery with such nice weather.
More than that, though- tomorrow is your last chance EVER to see this one-of-a-kind site-specific performance.
For the last seven years, DTE Executive Director Martha Bowers has directed the piece and produced it in collaboration with the Green-Wood Historic Fund. Part walking tour, part performance, part guided meditation through the beautiful and richly historical Green-Wood Cemetery, Angels and Accordions brings to life a Brooklyn treasure through dance, live music, and design.
Tickets are offered at a discount if purchased in advance, so head over to the DTE site and choose the performance time (12:30pm or 4pm) you’d like to attend.
A lot going on this week in the neighborhood. Here’s a mini-round-up of Red Hook news from the web:
- RHI’s Taste of Red Hook was this week, and NY 1 news was there.
- The 4th Annual Red Hook Film Festival lineup was announced.
- The City’s “Comprehensive Waterfront Plan” is open to public input, at an upcoming meeting (10/12) and on the web.
- The city may be testing out wind power in Red Hook?
- DTE’s Angels & Accordions is tomorrow (more on that later today)
The Red Hook Jazz Festival is a great event, which they’ve been doing a few years now (I think). It’s coming back, and Katia Kelly at Pardon me for Asking has put the info better together than I could: go check out the details there, you lovers of end-of-summer jazz. We won’t even point out that it’s not technically Red Hook…woops.
Tomorrow night: Andrew Butler @ The Clover Club
Right now: Andrew & the rest of the Political Subversities cast doing their “MTA” song.
The Clover Club, in Carroll Gardens, is famous for their kinda-fancy, slightly-retro libations done at a reasonable cost. (Check out their menu online, in which they break drinks, alone, up into categories including “swizzles,” “juleps & smashes,” and “sours and daisies,” to name just a few.
Combine that artisinal flair for booze with a hilarious up-and-coming artist and you have DTE’s August Featured Artist Event, taking place next Wednesday (the 18th) from 6pm-8pm, with Andrew Butler.
Above is a video from Andrew’s sketch comedy group, Tenured Faculty. On Wednesday, he’ll be performing original songs like these. (Check out Amsterdoodle, which may or may not include a line where he rhymes with the word/Geographic entity, Leidseplein)
Michele Carlo (Green-Wood Angel 2005-present) would like to invite the entire world (or all who love DTE and ANGELS & ACCORDIANS) to the launch party/signing for her book, FISH OUT OF AGUA: My life on neither side of the (subway) tracks, (Citadel Press) a memoir about growing up as a freckle-faced redheaded Puerto Rican in an Italian/Irish neighborhood in New York City back when a slice of pizza cost fifty cents. For more info, go to: http://www.michelecarlo.com
Michele is a great Angel and a wonderfully engaging story-teller, even when she’s not in official story-telling mode, so I’m sure her book is great. Martha just bought a copy so maybe we’ll have a review soon!
